First Draft

From the Harvard Kennedy School's Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics, and Public Policy comes First Draft News: a project dedicated to "fight[ing] mis- and disinformation through fieldwork, research, and education." The project has a number of resources that may be of interest to librarians and educators. Professionals in these fields may want to start by checking out the education section, which contains a number free resources designed for teaching journalism. These include hour-long verification training courses, which visitors may access by creating a free login. The resources section features short educational videos, interactive quizzes, and reading lists. The fieldwork section offers free, extensive field guides including the Field Guide To "Fake News" and Other Information Disorders, a 216-page booklet that "looks at how digital methods, data, tools, techniques and research approaches can be utilized in the service of increasing public understanding of the politics, production, circulation, and responses to fake news online."
